Alle meine Entchen - German Children's Songs - Germany - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World, Intro Image

Alle meine Entchen schwimmen auf dem See,
schwimmen auf dem See,
Köpfchen in das Wasser,
Schwänzchen in die Höh.

Alle meine Täubchen
Sitzen auf dem Dach,
Sitzen auf dem Dach;
Klipper, klapper, klapp, klapp,
Fliegen übers Dach.

All my ducklings are swimming on the lake,
Swimming on the lake,
Their little heads dip into the water,
Their little tails stick out.

All my little doves,
Settle on the roof,
Settle on the roof,
Clipper, clapper, clap, clap,
Fly over the roof.

Please let us know if you think this video has been taken down by YouTube.


Here's an alternate translation of the 1st verse by Lisa in Australia:

All my ducklings
Swimming on the lake
Swimming on the lake
Heads in the water
Tails in the air (up high).
